Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

Greenpeace is an independent organisation that has campaigned for environmental issues for the past 40 years all over the world. In a new purpose-built ship, the Rainbow Warrior, they will continue to fight causes close to the heart of environmental conservation and protection. The new Rainbow Warrior is the third to carry the name, and will be making its maiden voyage up the east coast of Australia in a tour to save the Great Barrier Reef.

As you’d expect, the Rainbow Warrior is one of the most environmentally friendly modern ships ever made. In the six-week trip up the coast, Greenpeace are making their first pit-stop in Melbourne in hope of gathering support around the cause of our dying reef. You’re invited on board and take part in a free tour of the ship. During the tour the captain and crew will guide you around the custom-built ship, and tell stories about life at sea.
